Information about this Gingerbread Display:

My entry was inspired by Scooby Doo, the theme for my granddaughter’s 3rd birthday! A runaway elf is hiding in the Mystery Mansion and the gang is searching for him.

The structure is made from colored and imprinted gingerbread, painted with food coloring after baking, to brighten the colors. Interior walls are painted with royal icing. Sugar lace curtains adorn isomalt windows, while trim, figures and other details are combos of ginger clay, fondant, rice cereal treats, pasta, and royal icing.
